Vast Options and a Vibrant Community
Living on campus means experiencing the Rutgers community—studying for exams alongside your roommates, sharing late-night munchies in the lounge, and participating in events planned by friends down the hall. Whatever the time of day, you’ll find yourself sharing the ups and downs of college life with a close-knit group.
Across its five, interconnected campuses, Rutgers University–New Brunswick operates one of the largest collegiate housing programs in the country. That means you have lots of choices of where to live, whether it's suites for upperclass students with a shared kitchen and living room or residence halls shared by fellow students with the same academic interests.
